The Electrical Transmission and Distribution (ET&D) Partnership conceived of and subsequently developed the OSHA Electrical Construction Industry Outreach training course with the goal of producing non-traditional industry training tailored toward employees involved with the construction and maintenance of power transmission and distribution systems. Members from each of the partner entities worked diligently to develop and implement this industry changing and industry challenging training course. Each module targets workers employed in the power transmission and distribution workforce. The course, based on the current OSHA construction standards discusses standards and industry accepted best practices along with certain non-traditional but applicable subjects as equal-potential grounding, flame resistant clothing, electrical arc protection, and prejob briefings.
NOTE: Although this course is commonly referred to as the 'ET&D 10-Hour' training, it takes approximately 12 hours of class time to complete. Lunch will be provided each day of training.
Students receive a traditional OSHA 10-Hour Construction Outreach card with a designation indicating the student completed the ET&D Construction Outreach training course.
This course is taught by OSHA-authorized instructors.
